  1. Enabling point of care molecular diagnostics by developing an adaptive PCR instrument and on demand kit reagents

    SBC: BIOVENTURES, INC            Topic: 172

    Because of its high sensitivity polymerase chain reaction PCR is the gold standard for the diagnosis of many infectious diseases but generally only implemented in well equipped laboratories One of the major roadblocks for expanding PCR to point of care markets is the lack of simple robust single tube PCR designs which preserve its laboratory based high sensitivity and specificity In this F ...

  5. Engineered Strain for Bioconversion of Food Waste to Fuels

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: A17AT011

    The proposed strategy in this STTR proposal for bioconversion of food waste to butanol uses the well-described Clostridium acetobutylicum organism to convert the carbohydrate to the fuel molecule butanol. Based on our teams many years of work with butanol formation and genetic studies of the organism and the advancement of recently developed genetic methods, the team will develop a set of genetic ...

  9. Multiscale Simulation Framework for Modeling of Structural Reactive Materials

    SBC: WASATCH MOLECULAR, INC.            Topic: AF16AT23

    We propose to develop a set of multiscale modeling tools for structural reactive materials (SRMs) that explicitly treat microscale, mesoscale and macroscale coupling of mechanical response, thermal properties and chemical reactions. At the macroscale, a combined material point method (MPM, solid)/Eulerian (ICE, fluid) methodology, MPM-ICE, will be employed to investigate the behavior of select int ...

  10. Freeze Casting of Tubular Sulfur Tolerant Materials for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    SBC: Millennitek, LLC            Topic: A14AT011

    Solid oxide fuel cells have long suffered from degradation due to impurities in the fuel and complexities associated with dissimilar materials and high operating temperatures.This degradation lowers the usable cell power output and requires ancillary equipment for fuel sulfur removal and reformation.A unique microstructure for the tubular anode will be produced using a novel freeze-casting techniq ...
